25 1/2 weeks

how on earth do i have 3 more months of pregnancy?

awful picture, but i took it to show binney and my twitter 'friends' cause one of the regular customers came in today and was shocked that i still have so far to go. he has a friend due in the begining of july (i think) and shes not much bigger than i am.

names

this little fricker is going to need a name. coming up with and choosing a name is definitely HARD. what makes it worse is when i actually think of a possible name, 9 times out of 10, the boyfriend doesnt like it. like, at all. anyway, heres a list of possibilities, in no particular order. i'll add and subtract some names as they come to me...

-wren - bf hates this one, says its like ren and stimpy.
-lake - surprise surprise, he doesnt like this one either.
-tegan
-rory
-delia
-remy
-liv
-brooke
-leah
-charlie
-ryan
-olive - the bf said 'no olives!' he hates olives, the freak...
-joey
-olivia
-reagan - the bf likes it!!

brace yourself...

for 30 freaking ultrasound pictures! ok maybe i wont post all 30...
seeing the specialist today was pretty awesome. her kidneys look completely fine, and the scar tissue or whatever it was is now just like a minor wrinkle and will almost definitely go away even more as my uterus grows. woohoo!

ok, starting with the regular style ultrasound images

heres one of the creepy looking ones


a foot


profile of her face, plus her body and an arm


another profile. the protrusion above her head on my uterus is the 'wrinkle' that will smooth out


bottom view of her 'girl parts'


ok, now the cool ones.




umbilical cord going across the wrist and under her chin











another look at her girl parts


yay!

more beachness




im 6 months pregnant. whoa.

i soooo do not feel like blogging. i dont know why. maybe i'll make a list of pregnancy woes.
-leg/feet cramps that wake me up in the middle of the night. sometimes in both legs at once.
-baby continuously kicking my bladder, and everything else.
-muscles i didnt even know i had in my groin area being painfully sore. wanna roll over? ouch. wanna move my leg? ouch. wanna do anything? yeah, ouch.
-heartburn! got it for the first time the other night, thought i was gonna die.
-having to pee alllll the time.
-my boobs are bigger. quit looking!

ok thats not very many things, im probably forgetting a bunch. or im just a wuss.

appointment with the specialist got pushed up to tomorrow, so im pretty excited about that. another ultrasound plus hopefully some answers is definitely something to look forward to. oh and i get to leave work at 11 :]

me and the baby went to check shit out at the beach after work today. look how small the belly looks in this picture!

not what i wanted to hear...

yesterday at my doctors appointment i found out that there may be some complications with the babys kidneys as well as my uterus. grrrrreat. apparently during the ultrasound 2 weeks ago they discovered that her kidneys may be partially obstructed. what that exactly means, im not sure. i looked up some things online and it seems that it may mean there is a narrowing or a kink in the area that drains urine from her kidneys. my doctor said they couldnt tell for sure, and that shes not worried and i shouldnt either. how do i not worry? she said it looked borderline, that there was just a chance the kidneys were obstructed and that if they are, it often 'clears itself up' by the time i deliver. either way, i have an appointment to see a specialist to do another ultrasound on may 22nd. and then, my uterus...apparently i have a band of scar tissue. normally that would mean that its very difficult to get pregnant, obviously i did. then, i guess depending on how its attatched and where, to my uterus it can prevent the uterus from growing and stretching to accomodate the baby. because im already 20.5 weeks and havent had any problems it seems it hasnt done any of that, so thats really good news. but it does mean that i now have a slightly higher risk of needing a c-section to deliver.
ive gained 7lbs in the past month, but because i lost so much weight from being sick in the begining its only a total of 3lbs weight gain for the entire pregnancy but my doctor said that its perfect and everything looks fine. the hearbeat is fine, i feel her moving around a lot, all the other organs and growth rates looked normal.

i know this isnt the worst news i could have gotten back so im trying not to stress over it too much, im sure everything will work out fine in the end.

:]

i can see her(i still feel really weird saying 'her'. i usually say 'it') moving around. little punches and kicks maybe? its kind of neat but now i feel sorta guilty like everytime i feel it i should stop what im doing and look at my stomach, haha.
other updates, now when i lay on my back you can still tell i have a belly. before it pretty much disappeared and looked like a regular stomach. took these pictures a couple days ago. im half way there...

im losing my belly button :/

ohhh and went to the beach last weekend after we signed a 6 month lease on this studio by the beach. we have our own walled/fenced in grassy yard with a little covered lanai :] move in on the 2nd i think.

looks like an alien


soooo i had my ultrasound today. during the half an hour or so we got to see like every single detail of the baby. 4 chambers of the heart, kidneys, bladder, stomach, arm and leg bones, spine, brain, probably more lol. and its a girl :]
oh and based on her size, the due date has been changed from september 13th to the 10th. we'll see when she feels like coming out though.

baby heartbeat :] the loud noise that interrupts the heartbeat is the baby moving. i think.

last night i decided i wanted to do something outdoors and active today. although i couldnt get keli out of bed till a little after 1pm i decided i wanted to go to temple valley and see the temple. i had only been as a child so it was kind of like going for the first time. there were way too many people there. a tour bus actually came while we were there. dont like that.anyway, picture time.



amida, a golden buddha unique to the entire world. at over 18 feet tall its thought to be the largest figure carved since ancient times. you gotta take your shoes off before you come in...that i like.














figured i probably should get one of me


from the top of the cemetery

i didnt get a picture of the five foot high, three ton brass bell because there was always so many people around it. you strike it with a soft wooden log..it sounds really nice. i also took two polaroids that i'll upload later.
